Full Moon: Forgiveness & Gratitude

The Full Moon is generally considered to be the end of the lunar cycle. Of course, the lunar cycle, never actually ends. The Full Moon seems to be the 'climax' of the monthly lunar cycle. The energies build and build-up to the Full Moon then ... BOOM. There 's always some sort of Full Moon madness followed by some cosmic lunar sigh. At the time of the Full Moon, we are being asked, or more, rather forced to deal with our 'problems.' This is why sometimes people may feel a little more 'loony.' 



The Full Moon is about releasing the old: letting go of lower energies that come from upsets or any negative events, as well as negative behaviour patterns ou have fallen into. It is about releasing toxins, toxic people, and bad habits. It's about letting - go and clean - slate time. It is the time to release the things we don't want: guilt, disappointment, jealousy, or fear. 


The Full Moon is an incredibly powerful time to start doing inner work - for looking within, shedding the pasts, and shifting blocks. When the Moon is full, it's at its brightest, and it can shine a light on our darkness - on the deepest parts of ourselves that we usually can't see. 


The Full Moon also reminds us to pay attention to our working life. Are you spending too much? Events happening at the Full Moon can tell us to rein things in. Are you giving too much? This is also a time where the Full Moon tells you to remember to take as well. 


Why is forgiveness crucial for manifesting?

It is important to note that in order to realise our dreams via the New Moon manifesting, we need to have released any grudges or upsets that we may have against anyone. That is just how it works. The Full Moon is also the ideal time to practice forgiveness and gratitude. We can use the Full Moon to do the following:


  • Process Negative emotions

  • Process Fears

  • Process Upsets

  • Process Arguments

  • Process Disappointments

  • Process Dramas

  • Process Wrongdoings


In order to process these things (and release the karmas that come along with whatever happens), we have to forgive. That could mean forgiving ourselves or forgiving someone else. It sounds more challenging than it is. 


Once a month, at the time of the Full Moon, we can take a moment to 'get square' with our teachers. We forgive them for what they have done because they have a soul contract with us, whether they know it or not. 


Resentment only leads to bitterness, which is toxic.
